A corrupt African colonel has converted half his country's wealth into diamonds and smuggled them to a Manhattan safe house. Four upstanding citizens plan to rescue their new nation by stealing the diamonds back—with the help of a “specialist”—Parker, that is. He has the best references in town. Will Parker break his rule against working with amateurs and help them because his woman would be disappointed if he doesn’t? Or because three hired morons have threatened to kill him and his woman if he does? They thought they were buying an advantage, but what they get is a predated death certificate. “Crime fiction stripped down—as it was meant to be. . . .

Contains three Harry Bosch novels. THE BLACK ECHO: A body found in a tunnel off Mulholland Drive looks like a routine drugs overdose case, but one new puncture wound amidst the scars of old tracks leaves LAPD detective Harry Bosch unconvinced. To make matters worse, Bosch recognises the victim: Billy Meadows was a fellow 'tunnel rat' in Vietnam. Bosch believes he let down Billy once before, so now he is determined to bring the killer to justice. THE BLACK ICE: When the body of a missing LAPD narcotics officer is found, rumours soon emerge that he had been selling a new drug called Black Ice from Mexico. The LAPD are quick to declare the death as a suicide, but Bosch is not so sure. Fighting an attraction to the cop's widow, Bosch starts his own maverick investigation, which soon leads him over the borders, and into a dangerous world of shifting identities and deadly corruption. THE CONCRETE BLONDE: When Bosch shot and killed Norman Church, he was convinced it marked the end of the search for one of the city's most bizarre serial killers. But four years later, Church's widow is taking Bosch to court, accusing him of killing the wrong man. To make matters worse, Bosch has just received a note, eerily reminiscent of the ones the killer used to taunt him with. As he battles to clear his name in court, Bosch faces a desperate race against time to find the killer...
